The amount of data and services supported by Information Systems (ISs) has increased exponentially during the last few
years. Recent developments have shown an inversion towards decentralization and distribution of applications and services
in the huge pool of devices and computing facilities available nearer to the customers. This shift is driven by the Internet of
Things, which is further increasing the amount of data to be stored and computed. Fog Computing is the last frontier for ISs,
where data and services can be moved in the continuum of resources between the cloud and the edge.
In this workshop we aim to collect contributions investigating issues related to the management of cloud and fog
computing in modern information systems with a focus, but not limited, on energy efficiency, security, and privacy, their
relations and trade-off with other requirements such as response time and throughput. We are considering both the
application components of the information system with their complexity, as well as the management of the data used by
Topics of interest:
○ Modelling, Monitoring, and Managing Cloud and Fog computing solutions
○ Models, methods, and tools for data management in Cloud and Fog Computing
○ Energy-awareness and sustainability in Distributed Information Systems
○ Quality of Service, energy efficiency and security in Fog Computing
○ Blockchain proposals for IoT and edge devices
○ Blockchain-based architectures for Fog Computing
○ Distributed and Federated Learning in heterogeneous Information Systems
○ Synergy between Distributed Information Systems and the Internet of Things
○ Security and privacy solutions for next generation Information Systems

Blockchain Challenge is a 24h non-stop hackathon to define and develop a system based on Blockchain technology.
- Identify citizens and economic activities that generate municipal waste using a mobile application, recording their behavior in a chain of blocks, for selective collection, and encouraging good behavior.
- Promote the use of Blockchain technology and new technologies through the definition and development of new proposals for a system of tracking, monitoring, an incentive for the selective collection of municipal waste.
- Create an inspirational and NETWORKING ecosystem between experts in blockchain technology, programmers, UX/UI developers, and other profiles with which to share knowledge and experiences.
Blockchain Challenge és una hackató presencial de 24h de durada (non stop) per definir i desenvolupar un sistema basat en tecnologia Blockchain.
OBJECTIUS DE LA COMPETICIÓ
- Identificar als ciutadans i les activitats econòmiques generadores de residus municipals utilitzant una aplicació mòbil i enregistrar el seu comportament a la cadena de blocs, vers la recollida selectiva, per tal de d’incentivar un bon comportament.
- Promoure l’ús de la tecnologia Blockchain i les noves tecnologies a través de la definició i desenvolupament de noves propostes per a un sistema de seguiment, monitoratge i incentivació de la recollida selectiva de residus municipals.
- Crear un ecosistema d’inspiració i networking entre els experts en tecnologia Blockchain, programadors/es, desenvolupadors/es UX/UI i, així com d’altres perfils amb els quals compartir coneixements i experiències.
